Just returned from a 2 night stay at The Wayside in the very capable hands of Stephen and Lynn. The standard of the work carried out over the years to turn the dilapidated barn into luxurious accommodation is a credit to both of them. Not only the renovation, but,EVERYTHING they do is first class. Excellent food, superb accommodation, very helpful... More

We stayed for 3 nights and had a really comfortable stay in this lovely B&B. The beds were comfy and the bathroom was very modern as was the whole building but still retained that historic farmhouse feel. We were warm and cosy even though it was cold outside (well it was cold for us!). Steve and Lynn have done an... More

The Wayside is very nicely located close to the seaside so it's easy both to go to the beach and to go to the mountains. Also other places of the Lake District such as Windermere are easily accessible by a drive through stunning landscapes.

One of the nicest places we have stayed on our 1 month trip. An oasis in the middle of crappy spots to stay. Beautiful rooms, sensational host and spectacular outlook. Very highly recommend. Well done Steven your renovation of this 400 year old property is outstanding. We had a great meal, slept like babies and just soaked in the atmosphere.... More
